Poetry Play #40

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Sione



I could tell you a tale of wonders mingled in world


A tangled tale with a tangy taste?

                Speak on, storyteller of the skies

                You have the earth of my ears

                Now sow the seeds of your mouth with the spade of your tongue


                I could tell you a tale of horrors of the world

                The world ancient and the world to come


                A tale of horrors?

                I can find that on the face of newspaper

                Or through the news headlines of my tv

                We need new tales

                A comic relief from our tragedy


                No man is truly free until he is redeemed from the shackles of his self-inflicted ignorance

                This in itself is the horror

NB: Poetry Play, a product of Artilogue in partnership with PenAStory, is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up, or the poem gets too long. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday and Saturday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7baa55ae

About PenAStory

PenAStory is a group of young individuals with a passion for literature who have decided to come together to write under one platform. We seek to educate, inform as well as entertain our readers. Also, because we are targeting young literature lovers, we would like to touch on other interests of their lives hence the relationship category and because we all need a bit of motivation in our lives, we decided inspiration won't be so bad
